"I'm forkin' ya mom!"

Taka's really been getting into Chess lately and is getting pretty good at it too. He has learned about things like forking, pins, etc. and he plays almost every day. 

Today while making breakfast Liam says "Mom, let's play a game of Chess". I grab my coffee cup, sit down and we begin. After a few moves (of incredibly weak chess on my part) Taka yells out "I'm forkin' ya mom!". In my still sleepy, non-chess mind I was immediately alarmed. To my surprise Taka began to explain what this means in a Chess game. Crisis averted, it only means that he is attacking 2 of my pieces at one time. 

Lesson Learned - I am clearly under-qualified to play chess with a 6 year old :)
